Your gift to the Department of English will support student programs and scholarships, enabling English majors to develop their full potential.  Our faculty give generously to the department to help sustain student awards, travel, and scholarships; why not join them in their support of the English major?

Matching gifts

If you or your spouse/partner work for company that matches your charitable gifts, you may be able to increase the size of your donation through a matching gift. Search our online database to see if your organization participates.


Gifts made to create an endowed fund are invested for perpetuity. A portion of the earned income is then used to support the fund’s purpose. Any excess earnings are reinvested, allowing the fund to grow. Endowments may be created for student scholarships and fellowships, faculty chairs and professorships, or many other purposes.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts include gifts of marketable securities such as stocks and bonds; estate gifts through a bequest in a will or through a trust; charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts that provide a lifetime income stream to the donor; and other gifts of real estate or tax-deferred retirement assets.  For more information, please go to
